Frosh Trip Leader Application 2020

Frosh Trip 2020

Thank you for applying to be a part of the 2020 Orientation Team. OA Frosh Trip Leaders play a tremendous role in welcoming incoming students to Princeton and introducing first-year & transfer students to our shared values and traditions.

Being an Orientation Leader is a significant responsibility. All OA Orientation Leaders are required to:

Complete All Orientation Leader Required Trainings:

    HEART & CPR Recertifications

    When leading an OA trip, all leaders must hold valid CPR and Wilderness First Aid certifications for the duration of the trip.  For many students, leading Senior year requires going through the recertification process.


    American Heart Association (AHA) CPR, which OA teaches, offers a 2-year CPR certification.  To recertify, you can either take another AHA CPR course through OA, or become certified through another organization, such as the American Red Cross.

    Health Information

    Outdoor Action considers running healthy trips an essential part of our mission. We will work with you to identify a trip that's right for you based on any previous experience, your current physical condition, any special dietary needs you might have, physical limitations and medical conditions. We ask a variety of questions on our Health History form to assess your needs. Please contact us if you have questions about what trips would be best and to give us more detailed information about your special needs.

    Information for Diabetics

    Many students with diabetes have participated in the trip or led trips. These are a few things we have learned over the years to help you have a good week on the trip.

    Tell us About your Insulin Regimen

    When completing your health form, let us know about your daily insulin regimen. Are you taking insulin orally, spray, by injection, or an insulin pump? What type of glucose monitoring meter do you use? What are the temperature requirements for your medication and meter or pump? All of these things can help us place you on a trip that's in the right environment for you.
